8-6-71, the Bertrando AUD recording is a spectacular Hard to Handle.

Absolutely the finest audience recording of its day! While I love the H2H from that day, I feel 4-28 edges it my a note--I mean a nose. No, I do mean a note.

No HtoH beats 8-6-71; sorry, but Jerry is simply unbelievable on that one. I have listened to them all. Sorry--got my dander up (since there is little hair, I take what I got).

One man's opinion, anyhow...would never stoop to start a fight with the likes of one of my old timer brethren.

Got to agree with Sir William Tell on these H2H's!

I love the Weir/Garcia interplay in 4/28/71, but nothing beats Jers nuclear leads on 8/6/71!

Of course, I am biased. I happened to be sitting in the 12th row left of center on 4-28-71--same seat I had for the run.

It isn't just Bob and Jerry--but the way Jerry looked at Phil in the middle of the jam and nudged him to take the lead for a couple of bars before they first statement of "the theme."

Hell, face it, they're all mighty fine! Shame they dropped the tune after Gaelic Park. No doubt, they smoked it because it was in regular rotation. That's theonly way they could keep that jam so tight. 4 months off--they stuck to "easier" Pig tunes.

Once Jerry dropped the pedal steel in the early versions, I rarely met a H2H that I didn't like. On the Spring of 1971 tour, they played it almost every night! It go tight--and the Winterland date ain't no slouch. I love the 2-14-70 version on Bear's Choice for a pre-Bobby version, but after Bob started taking a first lead (as he did on Easy Wind), the jam really started to soar.

Check the downloads. It was download only. The last time I looked the '89 show was available. I rarely visit the Dead's official site but it was there a few months ago. I wanted to get it because as much as I love the show, the sound needs improving, including the version on this site.

Nice to be seen. Been caught up in the world of 1977 lately. I've been having a lot of fun with it. The other day though I put on a Pine Know show from 1991 just because of the odd set list. Throwing Stones>Iko/Watchtower>Standing on the Moon>He's Gone. After that it pretty much fits the bill except they come back to finish off Throwing Stones. A very cool show.

I'll be back in the milieu of '67-72 soon though. I never stay one place for long.

That Pine Knob '91 show was just spectacular. The Throwin' -> Aiko transition still gives me goose bumps. It's available through the dead.net download series. The night before wasn't bad either, nor was the following show at Soldier Field. A nice summer run. Spring, summer and fall '91 tours were all pretty sweet.

Yes, although there is a marked decline in the fall through to the end of '91. That's when Hornsby's feet got itchy. He reputedly hated bothe the Boston and NYC runs of fall Tour. Can't hear it on "tape" but that's what he says. Maybe the writing was on the wall even that early. I know he felt the band was falling back into "play it safe" mode.

I won't give another play-by-play of the details, but suffice it to say that the State dismissed the charges due to a lack of evidence.
